The Week 23042017: The 15 best tracks from the last 7 days.

Time is money, isn’t it? Is it? So screw the long introductions today, I mean I’ve been doing everything around here. A small team. Does one person count as a team? What do you think. Not that anyone cares. Just bring the tunes they say. Stop bloody maoning they say. turn off the lights they…

It’s the 22nd April here in Dublin and we’ve got Fresh Snow

Fresh Snow – Three-Way Mirror We love it here at SWIT HQ when bands get in touch and even if they don’t like Toronto’s Fresh Snow didn’t we’ll still find the tunes and post them anyway. This is the wonderful Three-Way Mirror off last year’s LP One. Christopher Mills directed a stunning video for it…

You’d be the Soft in the head not to like this.

Soft – Post Cabaret From Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia here’s the excellent Soft. This is the opening track off current album (and forthcoming vinyl release) Nostalgia. It’s Shoegaze,Post-Punk and ColdWave apparently. I don’t don’t like to categorise (although I see the value in giving people an idea of what something might sound like when searching through…

A double dip from Taxidermist & The Hubschrauber

SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: Le Millipede – Mirror Mirror

As a musician Götz is a magpie, having played in orchestras and big…

Feeling byzantine? So is Luna Green

Luna Green – Lotus Interception Wild and wonderfully original, here is Lotus Intercetion (Birds Records) by Sweden’s Luna Green. This is a an ominous, volatile four and a half minute odyssey. A forlorn incantation to the dawn, a winter hymn, a dream made real, a ghost that flickers into life and breaks through the ice….

A toast! to Talk Show Host

Talk Show Host – Fireworks (Tragically Hip cover) Fireworks is the new single by some of our favourite Canadians – Talk Show Host. It’s a storming Tragically Hip cover of their 1998 hit about love, hockey and nostalgia. Hey, I don’t know much about hockey, I don’t know much about love but I can do…

The Giovanni Ferrario Alliance (not Française)

Giovanni Ferrario Alliance – Brush Bit pressed for time this morning, places to be, people to meet, moods to kill etc. so I’ll just say I absolutley love this track from Italy’s Giovanni Ferrario Alliance. It’s got the substance to go with it’s style and it’s got that in spades. Great dream-like vdeo as well…
